...German. Do you know your Schweinswal from your Meerschweinchen? Well does it look like a pig...
...overlord. Finally after 163 days Tottenham Hotspur actually have a manager. Mauricio Roberto Pochettino Trossero.
...we shall all be back. Following on from yesterday's post another great final line of a film. Leslie Howard's classic “'Pimpernel' Smith”.
...if not particularly good taste. A Tweet yesterday from Last Exit To Nowhere reminded me I hadn't seen the film “A Boy And His Dog” for ages.
...Steve Bruce. He had one chance at redemption but he blew it, while others blow up his ego talking about what a great job he and his team did. No they didn't.
...departure of Tim Sherwood. The worst kept secret in football - this week - finally played out as Daniel Levy admitted he'd made another mistake that thankfully had a get out clause.
...down. The media haven't half got their knickers in a knot about Roy Hodgson picking some youngsters in his World Cup squad, when they should be focusing on the old failures instead.
...the rest of the deadwood with you. The end of this abortion of a season couldn't come quick enough once Levy decided to Sherwood it. The final match against Aston Villa pretty much summed up Timmy's, thankfully, short period in charge.
...follow. No doubt Timmy's phone will be ringing off the hook after his teams dismal capitulation to dismal opposition as for the third time this season Spurs lost to West Ham.
...bestest in the whole world. An unremittingly awful game of football from some, clogging thuggery from others, fitting last on Match of the Day, highlighting everything wrong about both Spurs and Stoke.
...they have to learn from this. So Peter Moores is reinstalled as the England cricket coach and Kevin Pietersen as had his say, though don't know if he quite gets it.
...career. Losing 3-1 to the smirking dim one called Sherwood must rank as the worst thing on the Fulham manager's long and distinguished CV as both player and coach.
...coming. There's no better team to be three goals down to than West Brom, as the Baggies dug Timmy out of yet another grave by throwing away a three goal lead to draw three all.
...he'll do enough of that for himself. Six and half years after Martin Jol led his Spurs side out and learnt his time was at an end, Timmy had the same experience, though the whole thing was far more enjoyable.
...“The Far East”. Bill Ruppert’s latest Effectology video shows him head over to Japan for some koto, flute and taiko drum.
